How fun is that background featuring the Viva Decor Paste and the Falling Snow stencil by Simon Says Stamp? I thought it was the perfect backdrop for the fun hat and mittens from Holiday Cheer. I stamped and heat embossed them in white and then added some color by sponging on Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, and then die cut them using the Holiday Cheer Companion Die.
To create the string for my mittens, I used a paper piercer to poke a hole in each and then threaded a piece of hemp twine that I colored with a Copic Marker through them. Thanks Kathy! The sentiment from the same set was added onto a panel die cut using the Gift Card Layers Die.
But you don't have to get that intricate to create some great designs with this stamp set. With a few fun colors and good ol' stamping, you can whip up a batch of cards in no time.
I just stamped the solid images in the set and then over-stamped them in black with the corresponding line images. To add a little special touch, I just added a bit of sparkle with a Clear Wink Of Stella Pen.
This really is a perfect set for those mass produced holiday cards!
